Is Beyoncé the Only Person Who Could Pull Off Wet Hair at the Grammys?

If you’re like us, you’re still recovering from BeyoncĂ© and Jay Z’s super-sexy Grammy Awards opening performance. (Seriously, we’re surprised the stage didn’t spontaneously combust from all of that heat.) And now that we’ve calmed down, we know we’ll be debating her wet hair look over the next week.

The singer looked fierce in a black sheer bodysuit (which showed off the majorly hard work she’s putting in at the gym). She also sported a bedazzled bra top and some revealing fishnet tights as she sang “Drunk in Love” with her husband. But we couldn’t stop staring at her short, heavily gelled tresses. And she totally owned the hard-to-pull-off hair trend. (#WetHairDontCare?)

Pantene celebrity stylist Kim Kimble gave Beyoncé her look by working the brand’s “Curly No Crunch Curls Whip” into the singer’s wet hair and brushed it through with a paddle brush, then scrunched for definition. The line’s “Keratin Repair KeraGloss Oil Mist” gave it even more shine for the performance.

Is it something we’ll be trying out anytime soon? Undecided. But tell us: Are you a fan of the look? Will you give it a shot? Or is this for Beyoncé only? Share your thoughts below!

Reblogged this on itsshaziaa and commented:
Who cares about her HAIR! She ROCKED the PERFORMANCE! Queen B I LOVE YOU!

Miguel on

That was a hot mess.

susan on

Enough with her. She and her skeezy husband are overrated.

Jane on

So, she took out her longer extensions and shook her rear end. What is the big deal.

Taylor on

I don’t think the performance was great, but man, they definitely love each other.

Bernice on

She tries to hard to be sexy it should come naturally. Also the performance was boring!

Allison on

She was outstanding! So much jealously and hate here. Kinda sad, really.

Ruby on

It was cool to see Beyonce, but she lip synced and Pink sang live while literally tumbling through the air on silks. Just saying . . .

Lisa on

This performance was a hot mess. Stop praising this woman every move like she never does wrong. Sometimes she do good some times she do bad like every other artist. The performance was boring and the wet dog hairdo (wet weave on beyonce) looks ridiculous.

Lala on

Actually she can’t pull off wet hair. She looks bad…

Sharon on

I would love to see her natural hair. Because in some pics when she bent back on the chair you can see her weave tracks. This woman is not a deity so stop worshipping her she has done nothing to improve humanity.

Diana S Fetterman on

I wasn’t impressed at all with the opening act. I found it boring and not worthy of an opening. There have been better an I think Beyonce is over rated.

digit on

Um, I’ve seen plenty of wet haired gals that look WAYYYY hotter than her. Stop pimping us this idea that Beyonce is some sort of Queen, and the universe revolves around her…


erica2 on

MILEY that’s how you pull off sexy! Queen B still reigns! B and J are a dynamic duo and look so in loved. Loved the performance her sexy wet hair and when jay-z gave her a little love tap on her booty cute :)

Tee on

Wet? Didn’t look wet to me, I did like the short style though.

Tay on

Miley can do it better than her!

Marie on

Ummm no.

Marie on

So if we don’t share the same opinion as you then we’re jealous or “hating”? Oh to have a small brain like yours….

Julie on

Lip sync at Grammy,how embarrassing? Can this woman ever sing live? The only sexy part of the whole performance is her lingerie, what were they trying to hide behind all these act on the stage?

BiteMe on

Epic Fail! Tired of seeing the same strip club performance from this wig wearing, washed up slore & her granddaddy rapper hubby. Grammys was soo boring this year.

susan schweitzer on

Dreadful…..let it grow

heather on

The only thing she’s pulling off is looking like a wet poodle.

Stylista on

You mean wet weave

Mel on

Only People magazine would worship this woman for ‘shower hair’. Ick…………

Heather on

I agree with Frank Garrett. The way Hollywood and the music scene worship her is nauseating. She isn’t the ONLY talented person nor will she be the last.

And for anyone who thinks this is a sign of jealously, think again. Its simply a comment and if you dont agree, scroll past it.

sue on

Lost some respect for Beyonce with this act. Too much for the 8:00 time slot. Couldn’t understand the lyrics, plus on the tape delayed west coast lots of words were bleeped out by network. I changed the channel as soon as he came on stage.

Really? on

This article title is so laughable. Yes she is the only women in the world who could pull of wet hair. Also I love how coy she acted when Jamie Foxx was complimenting her. Yes Beyonce you are shy about being sexy when you are singing about swallowing and grinding on wood and doing a striptease on TV. And so it goes money does not buy class.

Yay on


gerry on

Thought act stunk…we didn’t need to c her rear end in our faces…I don’t call that entertainment…what happened to good old days when real singers sang n you didn’t hav to b distracted by skimpy outfits n strip teases …great singers n music is why public tunes in..n fashion too….sorry.

Yay on

So glad I watched this on YouTube so I missed the show. Downton Abbey is so much better.
Beyounce looks like a stripper who was rode hard and put away wet. Great role model for woman like she projects. She barely speaks English with all her Ebonics. First time I’ve heard the song. Something about a kitchen, a surfboard and grinding on wood. Sure to be a classic and covered by others for years to come.
Now I need to go shower and brush my teeth after watching that. Gag.

Please take Kimye with you and go anywhere, but here.

Back when on

Where is a true entertainer like Tina Turner when you need her? At least the 1/2 time Super Bowl show is worth watching this year.

Liza on

Why is People so obsessed with Beyonce?! I get that she’s a successful artist but geez!

Charli on

She didn’t pull it off, it’s just the media have a deal with her and the Kardashians.

BJ, get it? on

Two words: SO OVERRATED!

Tina on

Umm, no, she didn’t pull it off.
